I often note as I walk about our city how much people care for their gardens, and the places near where we live. We have many parks with small flower boxes that the neighborhood attends. The city staff do a great job of caring for the plantings and bushes along County Road 15, keeping them pruned and clearing out garbage that tends to collect there. There is one home along Tuxedo Blvd, where I saw a gentleman nearly every time out in his front yard tending what I think was a vegetable garden that encompassed most of his front yard! I have several neighbors who do such wonderful work and create such beautiful places for those of us walking. There are some who have vegetable gardens, and seem to enjoy showing my daughters their growing produce, and even letting us take some home from time to time!

|Wetonka Horticultural Society doing it's part to make Mound a better place!|
The Horticultural Society serves Mound in other various ways, including preparing and assisting with the Community Garden at Bethel Church, and answering questions from anyone (such as novices like me) at the Mound Farmers Market and other community events.
Thank you Westonka Horticultural Society for helping make Mound a great Place!
